Rosemary is 49 years old and lives in the town of Kireka in the southern Kampala region of Uganda. She is married and has six children. For the past 10 years, Rosemary has been working hard to manage her small business, which does tailoring.

To help expand her business, Rosemary has requested a loan of 2,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more materials and a sewing machine for making clothes to sell, and will help Rosemary to generate greater profits and pay school fees for her granddaughters. Rosemary hopes that in the future she will be able to open up another tailoring business.

Rosemary is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Rosemary who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
